The local dealer lent me one for the day and after hours [avg 55 mpg] in the seat I was still up for some more riding. Comfortable, powerful with bags of torque and useful computer readouts. Engine cutting out for no reason now resolved, fault unknown , piston slap only resolution is a rebuild , rear wheel bearings going at around modified bearings fitted, had to pay labour only , and a few smaller niggles, corrosion is a problem.

Bought from dealer Chuard Motos in Geneva. Poor grip in the wet and a short life too, I replaced them with Avon 3D-XM, which the front lasted 10, miles, the rear has still got a few thousand miles left.

Multiple-disc clutch in oil bath, mechanically operated Gearbox. Just going in for a 6k service after 6 months. I have a FS. Great handling, superb engine, easy to handle.
2007 BMW F800S
The engine was notable for early and powerful onset of torque. I now don’t use the clutch when changing from 5th to 6th. These are not uncommon t800s and you should check the mods have been done before buying. BMW has released the first pictures of the new FS twin-cylinder ahead of the official launch at In some markets, including bms United States, the FS was discontinued after the model year. Even when I had a scotoiler I didn’t find it as good as this.
The ride is great for a bit of everything, but don’t be fooled by the s in it’s title it’s no thoroughbred sports bike.
BMW FS () Review | Speed, Specs & Prices | MCN
The specs say 38 mpg, but I get 60 mpg doing 70 mph. I would not recommend this bike to my worst enemy, let alone a friend. This page was last edited on 17 Marchat Tob box is small which is annoying had old givi E52 on my old SV. The standard seat is OK for about miles.
F80s is every miles and many services are fairly basic checks whilst the economy of this is better than my old R. Although you will have to strengthen the underside of the front mudguard because its too flimsy. So get ready to launch operation tarmac attack, because the new F is ready to rip. Tried the ST preferred the S. You can compare the rating with other bikes.
Good solid, etc, but nothing amazing.
BMW FS – Wikipedia
I read all the reviews of the different BMW bikes. Shame – otherwise a good and economical bike. Most of the paintwork on this bike is powder coated.
But on a winding road up the mountains with the revs at 4. On a plus note paint quality is otherwise good and the bike has impressive style. Which is about what you get from a tank of fuel.
It is also sporty. Engine cuts out when you whang the throttle open at traffic lights, or popping the revs to hold your balance at low speeds – can be VERY annoying and embarrasing.
BMW F800S (2006-2010) Review
Last bike a Z1B, middling brakes and very suspect handling. They make great desktop images.
ABS available for both motorcycles as an extra. Vines of Guildford were excellent as were most of the competitor brands I spoke tooffering an extended test ride despite having passed my test just one week earlier and doing a very competitive deal on their ex-demonstrator.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the ST – it has certainly raised eyebrows amongst my more experienced biking mates.
Italian firm Husqvarna nmw released a new teaser video for the cc engine f800d around the BMW This combined with a very soft front fork and engine like a thrappy diesel means I cant whizz smoothly round tight roundabouts like I could in my cbf
